Colorado Green Now

With the growing season over and many landscape companies slowing down for the winter months, there is an opportunity to switch focus to education and self-improvement. If you’re like most Coloradans and enjoy the great outdoors, podcasts can be a way to combine education and outdoor activity. Next time you go for a hike or a walk, pop in some earbuds and learn while you exercise. With nearly 1.7 million podcasts (with 42M+ episodes available) on Apple podcasts alone, there’s bound to be a series that fits your interests.
